Student Alumni Board members at a student and alumni event.

Emory's Student Alumni Board interacts with university leadership

The Student Alumni Board (SAB) is a group of about 50 student leaders who oversee the planning and execution of signature Student Alumni Association programs and initiatives as well as the organization's overall strategic direction. These students have the opportunity to work closely with the Emory Alumni Association staff and various Emory alumni to ensure that programs align with the mission of SAA and provide value to SAA members and the Emory community as a whole.

The SAB is closely connected to the Emory Alumni Board, one of the highest alumni leadership groups at Emory. The organizational structure of SAB mirrors that of the Emory Alumni Board, in that the members are chosen to represent various aspects of the Emory Community. The SAB advises the Emory Alumni Board on student programs and connections, and members frequently participate in board meetings.

  • Helps students build relationships and network with Emory alumni around the world
